up the economy by printing more money. a lot of people criticize ben bernanke for that. it could sew the seeds of inflation where down the road the stuff will be way too expensive. it was the only game in town. if you believe bernanke, if he didn't do that, we may have gone into a double dip recession or something worse. >> let's talk about the fact that so many people who are heads of companies, corporations , manufacturing, service, doesn't matter what sector of the economy, there is such uncertainty looking into the new year. i want you to talk about the likelihood that businesses in this country are going to expand in this economic climate. >> i don't think they will. i worry about small businesses over the multi national companies. small business are stuck here. ge can diversify by opening a plant in china. it is easy to get productivity by going overseas. small business if you talk to anybody we don't know what will happen. we do know the president wants to raise our taxes. here is where the debate is absurd. the president says let's make it $250,000. it is fairness. people at

gross excesses' remained out of sight. until some believe their own rhetoric -- read ben bernanke -- about moderation. but when the global minotaur was mortally wounded, it left the global economy in disarray. it has put the world in permanent crisis. the minotaur was slain by a brave warrior named theseus. its death ushered a new era of tragedy, history, philosophy. our very own global minotaur died as the victim of wall street bankers. what will its demise bring? should be hope for a new era in which wealth does not require poverty? will be develop a system where no longer will abstract power waned while others get stronger? the global minotaur will be remembered as a remarkable piece to whose rain created and destroyed the aleutian -- the illusion that the global economy was stable.

recently had with nebraska democratic senator ben nelson. he served two terms and was part of the so-called gang of 14. that is at 8:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. here is a brief look. >> what is your thought about the art of compromise and how much it is now viewed in this city? >> well, you know, is valued to talk about it. everybody back home want people to come back to washington and work together. and then they send people back here who have committed not to work together. that makes it very difficult. if you have in the senate in block of individuals who will not compromise and think of compromise as a for that -- as a four-letter word, which is not, then it becomes difficult to merge ideas and find compromises and accommodations in process or implementation as opposed to your principles. no one is asked to compromise his or her principles when you are talking about compromise. maybe how you go about doing something, not exactly eliminating your view about one thing or another. i think the word compromise is over used, underutilized and misunderstood by an awful lot of people
avoided by the current chairman ben bernanke, and even though he avoids the conversation, he doesn't avoid giving congress the biggest fire hose in the world filled with free water. >> i love those kind of fire hoses on every corner, please. >> what's that, david? >> bernanke is the most aggressive fed governor we will ever know in the last 40 or 50 years with the monetary stimulation that began in november 2008. >> well her, needed to be? >> and that's likely to still be the only game in town in the face of just fiscal irresponsibility. >> in light of a digs functional congress and no fiscal direction coming from washington in terms of the capitol or the white house, you needed a more aggressive fed chairman, didn't you, david? >> absolutely, you do, and he's the best student of history for this type of situation. i worry two or three years down the road when he has to unwind it, when this record monetary stimulation could ultimately be inflationary, but that's not anywhere in the cards for the next 12 to 18 months. >> he won't be there anyway. he doesn't have to worry about that. he won'
by a wide margin, and replaces retiring democrat ben nelson. deb fischer, welcome and congratulations. >> thank you, judy. great to be here. >> woodruff: given the spectacle we're watching in the congress right now and the last few years and the low regard we know the american hold of congress, are you sure you want this job? >> oh, yes. there is so much that we need to do. we just need to roll up our sleeves and get to work. in nebraska we're very fortunate. we have a nonpartisan unicamral. we have experience with working with republicans and democrats. we've been able to get a lot done in nebraska. i hope i can bring that here to washington as well. >> woodruff: you obviously have not been a part of the senate that has been voting the last few days, but if you were sitting in the senate right now, would you have voted for the version of the fiscal cliff deal that the senate voted on last night? >> i haven't been part of those discussions. like most americans, i find it very, very frustrating to watch it. it's not what we expected. i can tell you that. the spending is a problem. when

american diplomats out of iran in 1980. the rescue was the basis for the hit movie "argo" with ben affleck. while his role was left out of the film, his actions during the hostage crisis were pivotal in protecting the americans after the u.s. embassy in tehran was stormed by militants. he hid the americans in his home until they could escape the country. his son told us he was a humble man and a real canadian hero. sheardown suffered from alzheimer's and had cancer. he was 88 years old. >>> top of the hour. good afternoon, everyone. i'm deborah feyerick. and right now the house is in recess while the nation is in limbo. technically we went over the fiscal cliff when the new year began. but for all practical measures, the senate pulled a power shoot that should soften the fall. senators approved it 89-8. now it is up to the house to stop the fiscal cliff. that's $600 billion of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts. at this hour, though, a vote by the house is not yet scheduled. a multiple representative took to the store today floor today vote would be no. >> i wish i could say this was a
caught you talking with senator ben nelson of nebraska. here's what he said. >> if we don't have a deal within the next 24 hours, the question is where do you buy a parachute? looks like we'll be going over the cliff. because the closer we get to the end, the less likely it is you're going to be able to compress an agreement into place that will have enough votes to pass. >> compress is probably a nicer word, ram it through is probably what is going to have to happen in order to -- listen, he just said 24 hours, lisa, to reach an agreement. let's say that happens. maybe some kind of deal at the white house today. what would the mechanics of rushing the deal through congress and getting it passed into law in the next few days, give me those mechanics. >> okay. let's break it down so people are really clear on how this could possibly happen. there are some hurdles that congress would have to get passed, some they set up themselves. the first, the house has a 72-hour rule, they have to have bills printed, 72 hours before they vote on them. but the house has gotten around that before. they
are nothing but criminals, the better. host: and from this, the term fiscal cliff originally came from ben bernanke. let's hear what president obama said last night before heading back to his vacation in hawaii. [video clip] >> more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses under this law will not see their income tax rise. millions of families will continue to receive tax breaks to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for research they do and investments they make and the clean energy jobs they create. 2 million americans out of work that are out there looking every day will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they are actively looking for job. but i think we all recognize this lot is just one step in the broader effort to strengthen our economy and brought an opportunity for everybody. -- this law. the fact is the deficit is still too high. we are still investing too little in the things that we need for the economy to grow as fast as it should. that is why speaker john boehner and i originally tried to ne
of the wall street journal. >> we will break away. live now to the capital. that is senator ben nelson from nebraska, retiring, make your marks on c-span. -- making remarks on c-span. thank you. we thought we would catch a moment of his comments, which were brief. we're standing by four senators coming back from their party caucuses. caller: the other thing is harry reid has not voted on over 40 bills the republicans have put up there, and he blames republicans. , isopod you were supposed to bring bills up there and talk about them and vote on then. they have not pass a budget in over four years. they are not being responsible for that. guest: that is what makes him such a powerful figure. they said we sent you the legislation that would help the deficit cannot help create more jobs, and democrats in the senate have not acted. democrats say those are partisan bills with no bipartisan support. that is why the leader -- senate leader reid is going to be at the white house today because his signing off on anything is vital. guest: one of the things we sell was financial markets to end it out m
heard from senator ben nelson. if we can, let's play that sound bite from a few hours ago. we don't have that sound bite ready at the moment. i'm sorry about that. what senator nelson said was the next 24 hours are the window if something doesn't happen in this next day, then there may be no chance of getting a fiscal cliff deal by january 1st. so that's along the lines of what senator reid is also saying. here we are, critical hours yet again. >> they are running out of days, as you know. we'll get back to you when you get that statement from senator mcdonnell. thanks so much. >> you got it. >>> cnn's chief correspondent ali velshi has a lose closer look at how lawmakers and president obama got themselves in this mess in the first place. >> now we've passed a bold package of tax relief for america's families and businesses. >> it starts more than a decade ago when then president george w. bush initiated a series of tax cuts for all americans but it's a deal with the devil. the cuts, which are politically expedient but costly to government expire in ten year's time. >> both houses of con
is #fiscalcliff. ben says "still hard for me to believe that the house will force the nation ought the fiscal cliff into recession, which is what amending this bill would do." "i just finished reading the senate bill. this is not a bad deal, it is however only one step, many to go." "the fiscal cliff deal is an increase in taxes to support wasteful government spending. nothing to celebrate over." "we are getting a raw deal. more taxes. no cuts. not the way to balance a budget." >> we're going to take a call from daenny. caller: good afternoon. i want to say that it is a shame washington cannot get its act together and do its job on this fiscal cliff. i seriously believe that if they do not get a dozen in this congress that the 113th congress will get it done. host: the hundred 13 congress comes in on thursday. we will be live from capitol hill with that. in the meantime we have at least today and tomorrow of the 112th congress. michelle is in palm bay, a republican. caller: i wish responding to the comments earlier when the guest baker was on about well for -- welfare reform. i see way too ma
whatever the fiscal cliff, a term coined by ben bernanke. john is on the phone from connecticut. caller: i think it is good, but i think we should have gotten a deeper -- i would have liked to have seen 250. i also find its disturbing it sound like we are being referred to as the people instead of fellow americans -- i find it disturbing it sounds like we are being referred to as the people instead of fellow americans. it sounds like congress is a noterent body, n.yand they are representing us, and i hope they will turn it around and start representing the people's will. >> you heard the back-and-forth. we expected the house to double out 30 minutes ago, but the last minute speeches by democratic and republican members dealing with the issue of hurricane sandy and the $60 billion package that as part of the relief effort -- the house is back tomorrow. the future of the legislation remains uncertain. jack joins us from idaho. i would say good evening, because it is morning in washington but evening in idaho. >> witnessing this spectacle, it strikes me the total rancor -- when boehner is try
